In any case, it is clear that 10.31 and 10.35 working version.
I think you should not worry. There is something to be guided, if you want to maintain compatibility.
Всего доброго и удачи. С уважением Сергей.

Yes.  Only versions 10.32-10.34 had this problem.

Hi
I just worked with ExifToolUI 4.27 and it worked with ExifTool 10.3.8. Edited some JPGs in batch and it logged only some Canon Camera Tag related warnings.
But I was not able to edit any tag in ExifToolUI 5.16 with ExifTool 10.3.8.

There have been some people with problems running ExifToolGUI on Windows 10 which have been solved by setting the compatibility property of the ExifToolGUI application.  See this post for details.

Actually also ran into the Win10/ExifToolGUI issue. Settings the compatibility or any other measure mentioned here did not help. Finally what did it was a setting that I had never noticed previously. As the files were downloaded as ZIPs, when unpacking them with the Win10 explorer a new property shows up (ExifTool, as well as for all files of ExifToolGUI). You need to check that bottom right option (sorry, I have a German Win10). It says that the file comes from another computer and access is blocked. Cehcking the option allows access. The only other settings required for me were to run with admin rights and whitelisting in my antivirus.

For the record I found Exif Pilot, which is free.  It seems to be a reasonable program.  At the time I had not done much with metadata beyond what Photoshop and Lightroom provide, but I needed (maybe wanted is better  ;) ) to do something about copyright for art from a number of drawing programs (on computers, tablets, and phones) that typically do not add metadata.  In trying to decide how to do that, I got more into Exiftool and ExifToolGui, that I had apparently installed some time before.

It was harder than I thought, and by the time I had it in hand, I was much more experienced with Exiftool and ExifToolGui.  I removed Exif Pilot from my computers, just to keep things simple.  ExifToolGui seems to be good enough for my purposes, mainly viewing metadata.  And there is Exiftool, which does about anything (but not as a GUI) as a backup.

The bottom line is if you are looking for an alternative, this would be one to look at, at least on Windows.

Yeah, thanks, Phil.

I, too, was initially bummed as I had trouble getting ExifToolGUI to function properly.

Phil's list of tools that leverage ExifTool is great. I actually had stumbled upon GeoSetter right after having trouble with ExifToolGUI (it's on Phil's list), and I'm actually finding it to be a fantastic GUI. To me, it seems to be much easier to use than ExifToolGUI, but I'm in no position to state that as fact.

Anyway, if you're jazzed about the possibilities of using ExifTool (which I was), but thinking that without ExifToolGUI it'll be a large learning project, GeoSetter is likely to meet your needs. Geosetter is free. Download is on the Germany tld: http://www.geosetter.de/en/main-en/
